Hit-and-run victim left in street without help

Post by Ops NCO »

HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) -- A 78-year-old man is tossed like a rag doll by a hit-and-run driver and lies motionless on a busy city street as car after car goes by. Pedestrians gawk but appear to do nothing. One driver stops briefly but then pulls back into traffic. A man on a scooter slowly circles the victim before zipping away.

I saw the video of this on the news last night. Folks are all walking by this guy while he lays in the road. This happened in Connecticut. All I could think is that dang near everyone walking by are all those compassionate liberals, who will most likely vote for Obama. But they can't help out an old guy who lays on the hot road after he is hit by a car.

They were probably waiting for someone from the government come and save the man.

Amazing! :shock:

I saw that on the news as well, and it's beyond ridiculous.

I can't imagine being in that situation, and not having someone attempt to help. That's pretty f*cked up.
